About the hotel
The West Arms enjoys an idyllic setting in the foothills of the Berwyn Mountain, a rural paradise - a historic 16th Century building with considerable character. If you had to conjure up all dreamlike images of the perfect stay, they all seem to converge on The West Arms. Owned by Geoff and Gill Leigh-Ford, experienced hoteliers at home and abroad, with many successful ventures behind them, they have recently returned (2011).
On arrival the busiest event on the road is often the leisurely stroll of a pheasant, the loudest noise is the wind in the trees, the rushing of the river or sheep bleating on a neighbouring hillside. One of our lovely guests described his recent stay (October 2012) as follows "The West Arms has its own special quiet - a drowsy contented peace made of up centuries of just being there - occasionally stirred by the crackling fall of a log on the fire, distant laughter from the bar - and the warmest of welcomes from the staff, ending with a heavenly sleep in a snug bedroom. Often people who come just for a weekend want to stay forever, idling time away (which is very slow and in infinite supply along the Ceiriog Valley) and given the good ales in the bar, congenial conversations with locals and staff plus the finest food conjured up by the genius culinary magicians, oaths of allegiance to this perfect principality of peace where contentment reigns also known as The West Arms in Llanarmon DC". We are fortunate to have celebrity Chef Grant Williams (ITV Britain's Best Dish finalist) as a key member of the team - he is passionate about his role as Head Chef - he places his love of cooking at The West Arms almost as high as his love for his family and it shows in his consummate skill in producing excellent dishes, using locally sourced food (Lady Kenyon of Greddington's Home Grown Fruit and Veg, Josh Williams' Free Range Eggs, Dave Keegan of Llanrhaedr ym Mochant's Welsh Lamb and Beef, and Rosie Davies' edible flowers.

I chose this hotel so that I could visit railways at Llangollen, Oswestry & Welshpool.
Llanarmon DC is a pretty village, nestled in a hollow, surrounded by lush green hills (WiFi most welcome!). The staff were friendly and attentive. The single room was comfortable, with toilet and bathroom 'down the landing' (not a problem for me). Even in mid-June, there was a roaring open fire in the main reception area. The breakfast was extensive and excellent. The evening menu had limited choice for a vegetarian.
We arrived in the dark and peered down into the valley to see the West Arms lit against the back drop of the hills behind it.
Although very quiet when we stayed the staff were charming and bent over backwards to chat and make us feel welcome. The food was simply exceptional. An experience not simply a meal. The wine list is fantastic and the menu well thought out with some exciting combinations of traditional dishes and modern techniques. The location is simply stunning. The lack of mobile phone reception made our stay even better!
